The Master Mason: The Reason of Being: A Treatise on the Third Degree of Freemasonry
ISBN: 978-0986204128. Hardbound, 194 pages.
Third in the series of the Symbolic Lodge of Freemasonry.
The Master Mason is a formal exploration of the symbolism and allegory at work in the third degree of Freemasonry. Through that lens, this work seeks to find the hidden esoteric connections and their connections with the centuries-old ritual that crowns the process of becoming a Freemason. As with its predecessors, The Apprentice and Fellow of the Craft, this work seeks to find parallel with its esoteric siblings, the Golden Dawn, Thelema, numerology, tarot, the Kabbalah and other arcane and occult traditions.
This book explains the hidden symbolism in the process of becoming a Freemason.
As many traditions hold the keys to achieve perfection, within the Masonic tradition we are shown this path through the becoming of a Master. Truly, this degree opens as a mystery, and concludes on another, illuminating a path towards perfection and purpose.
